Kenneth Cole Mind Game Boot – $88.09 – $119.00 (depending on size)
Not quite work boots, not quite dress chelseas, and certainly not cowboy boots. Boots that have a (very) slightly pointed or gently rounded off toe can do plenty of work with jeans and sometimes chinos. Maybe not at this time of the year when it’s sweltering in many places, but for 9 or 10 months a boot like the previous edition of the Timberland Earthkeepers 6″ Side Zip can go with the vast majority of casual getups thrown at it.
And Timberland, if you’re reading this, feel free to bring back the previous edition of the side zip any time now.
But what about these? Original price was sniffing up at $200, and now it looks like they’re being discontinued. Instead of moving straight down, the zipper on these dips and slides in parallel with the lines of the lacing panels. Also, instead of just one zipper on the inside like the Timberlands, these have one on either.
Leather sole, made in China, but sports the label from the upper Kenneth Cole New York (not REACTION) line. They’ve got that perfect not-too-slim not-clunky-shape-either to em’, but… the zippers? Mneh?
